Founded in 1975, the SIFE organization was originally focused only in the United States. Today, SIFE USA operates as a subsidiary of SIFE Worldwide and is one of 39 countries around the world that comprises SIFE's premier business and higher education network.
As the single largest SIFE country operation, SIFE USA is a priority country for the future growth of the organization. SIFE USA works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize university students to make a difference in their communities while developing their skills to become socially responsible business leaders.
Participating students form teams on their campus and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. Through the SIFE USA Regional Competitions and USA National Competition, teams are provided a forum to present the results of their projects, and to be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges. The SIFE USA National Champion team advances to the prestigious SIFE World Cup.
In addition to the community focus of the program, SIFE's leadership and career initiatives create meaningful opportunities for learning and exchange among the participants as well as the placement of students and alumni with SIFE partner companies in search of emerging talent.
